is it too soon for a nomination for blog meltdown of the year?
this is a pretty good one.
Too early to nominate a sure-fire front-runner? Absolutely not.
This is great. First we had a user named Zeke melt down last night. Now we have these two guys here. It's been a busy weekend for trolls.
That was some pretty ridicouls comments he made. Any idea what started that meltdown? But +1 to you sir for pointing that out.
I can't believe "X Factor" wasn't banned for those comments. Is Brian on vacation or something?
Most of the comments he made were uncalled for, and offensive. He has to get banned for that.
I MISSED the Zeke meltdown??? I was the first one to accuse him of having multiple accounts days ago!! Doggone it, I was really looking forward to that one.
EDIT: This wasn't where I replied.
Yeah, the reality that Rich Rod has been a successful coach everywhere else he has been a coach? The reality that Carr stopped recruiting and Rich Rod had a talent depleted team when he took over? The reality that Rich Rod has been recruiting great kids, but they are still really young? The reality that there has been no stability in the DC position? Or the reality that trolls get to pick and choose what 'facts' that talk about?
if you think our program is a laughing stock, then why don't you go sit on the outside and laugh? The University of Michigan doesn't need people like you. If you don't have pride in our program than shut up and leave. To quote Yost,
"True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise --- the other, loyalty."
— Fielding Yost
you would know that this really isn't the case, except with the most vitriolic of the OSU/MSU fanbases and they pretty much sound just like you. Ignorant, ill-informed and full of spite.
Most reasonable fans of other programs have some recognition of what is being built at UM and they see a day coming, pretty soon, where we will once again be a game that they look forward to with a great amount of trepidation. At least the ones I know. I grew up an M fan in east lansing, my Mother is from Columbus and went to UM and her entire side of the family are rabid OSU fans. I know a LOT of OSU/MSU fans and nearly ALL of them have a more reasonable opinion of RR than you do.
The sorry, pathetic fact is that your measly little sense of self-worth is too wrapped up in the success of the UM football program and therefore you are suffering a crisis of identity, causing you to spend most of your time worrying what the fans of other programs think of Michigan football. Grow some stones you little byatch and support your program when they need you the most, instead of puking and mewling and turning on the program when it has given you so much in the past (apparently some sense of self-worth that you now dearly miss). I'll bet you are the type of person that would boo a bunch of kids giving it their all, am I right? You are a disgrace as a fan. Did you ever stop to consider that you, and those of your ilk, are part of the problem?
If you can't man up and grow a pair to stand behind 'your team', then at least spawn a few brain cells and start getting a little informed about things. Until then, you just sound like a screeching monkey, hurling your feces indiscriminately at a world outside his cage that frustrates him b/c because he doesn't possess the ability to comprehend the world around him.
Simple things for you to understand:
-highest team GPA in ? years aftere RR took over? How do explain that from a scumbag coach that recuits criminals?
-Mealer family/Brock adoption, you can call it BS, but it just ain't so. If it were PR only, I should think he would milk it, which he/they don't. They would also be able to get PR by doing FAr less, instead, they keep their mouth shut and continue to go the extra mile with Brock. Fuck you for suggesting otherwise. You must lead a petty, bitter, small existance somewhere. Think about yourself much?
-one of your precious 'sanctions' besmirching M is for over-monitoring class attendance in the summer...so, yeah, I'll take it and am pretty OK with that. Only a coach w/o character would be overly concerned with the academic status of his players.
-Everyone who has actually met RR and had some experience with him echo the 'nice guy' sentiment, HS coaches, parents of recruits, non-jihadist journalists, etc. But, i guess you would know better because....
-Feagin: player does something very stupid and runs afoul of the law, same day this is discovered he is off the team. So where do you point a finger at RR for that? Carr kept people around for trangressions far worse than that...many times. I have met and love Lloyd Carr and everything he meant to M, but he, nor any other coach, is perfect or can control every aspect of the players' lives.
-Cissoko: player at a position of dire need, perhaps not having a stellar year performance-wise, but still the best option on the field with future potential....gets into some trouble and is also gone. You see a pattern here that is not not evident at another program slighly north of Ann Arbor whose fans opinions matter so much to you?
-Dorsey: it must be nice to have grown up like you and be perfect. Eat shit for suggesting that this kid doesn't deserve a chance. I had trouble with the law as a teenager, as did many of my friends. i went to UM, upstanding citizen now. I would echo previous comments regarding the player (Lazear) RR recruited at WVU who had some previous legal issues. RR turned him into an honor student in college....amazing that he can apparently impart character to his players, while having none of his own.
-Pacman, Henry: again as pointed out in other comments, kept in check under RR, no issues at WVU, so now he is responsible for the actions of players after they leave WVU and go to the NFL?
-FYI - the buyout clause wasn't paid at the direction of UM and their attorneys as they posited that terms of his contract were unmet by WVU....have you ever worked in business, with something like $2.5M at stake and lawyers on retainer, you always take a shot, that is just the way things work. You never know if during the discovery phase of the trial you will hit on something that would make the WVU attorneys question a verdict and look to settle. Duh....
If you can't find it in yourself to read your Freep critically, then, by all means, stick with your spoonfeeding method if it works for you and keeps things (and you) simple, but at least look at the company you keep and try to understand that you are aligning yourself with the low end of the IQ scale.
-Drew Sharp, hack extraordinaire
-Rosenberg, backwater sports journalist in an industry that is in steep decline, in no small part b/c of cowardly little faux exposes like the stuff he 'writes'
-every mouth breathing MSU/OSU fan that wants to take some cheap shots and spout out pretty much the same thing you did: 'RR iz a scumbag with no character...Feagin, NCAA, Dorsey, pacman brah! scUM sux dude!'
-every blue-haired, 'down-in-front' fan that shows up Saturday in maize and blue plaid pants and goes home all pissed because there isn't the normal amount of W in his football cup and wonders aloud 'why we ever started passing the damn ball anyway'? Then spends the rest of the week yelling 'get off my lawn!' and keeping the neighbor kid's baseballs.
...and understand that people that DO read critically, that understand the game of football and can see the foundation being put in place that will actually make the M a program that is competitive on a national level for the first time in 20 years, that also think people like you are dicks, will be aligned against you.....and don't go on their blogs and bait them.
has 40 wins in 2 years??
RR popped out of the womb and landed in AA right? Damn 2 year olds with their damn swearing and RAWK music!!
I think the general sentiment of any INFORMED follower of college football understands that these allegations could be found at nearly every FBS program.
That doesn't make it right, of course, but the consensus of the non-ignorant is that UM is getting a raw deal. If anyone is laughing, it's folks in SEC country who are miffed that UM will be facing punishment for what they consider trivial issues.
So I guess we all imagined it when Marcus Ray was ruled ineligible during the 1998 season for taking money from an agent? Or when rumors swirled about Charles Woodson taking money from an agent one month before the 1998 Rose Bowl? Or when Artis Chambers played despite being academically ineglible?
I love that it's somehow worse in your mind for RR's players to practice too long than for Lloyd Carr to repeatedly use ineligible players on the field. Nice bit of compartmentalization there.

Don't shoo him away... it's the off-season. The board needs a little excitement.
World Record Breaking softness.
It was nice knowing you mgoblue1
Hopefully this kid choses the true champions of the west.
so I hope RichRod doesn't bring up the fact that USC is MONUMENTALLY more screwed than Michigan when it comes to NCAA investigations...
However, I also hope that someone tells him.
Here's to hoping Craig and Taylor will help Andre make the best decision for himself
And USC just pulled in Seantrel, so that can't hurt.
i hope you mean it can't hurt USC.
"Hey, Andre, want to play with the best offensive lineman in the country? We think you two would make a great team."
You know there is typically five linemen that start games, plus guys that rotate in, right?
Sentinel Henderson isn't going to time up ALL of the playing time at USC.
Ehhh I was more thinking from the tackle spot, because that's what he will probably be at the next level(unless there's something I don't know) and the fact that Seantrel will most likely take up one of those spots for 4 years.
In my fantasy Layla is having a pillow fight with the some Song-girls...

I must say, I did not anticipate this thread playing out the way it has...
You can thank the Tom Hagan Twins for its rapid degradation.
I have magical powers tonight! Every time I down voted mgoblue1 his point value went down 5 to 8 points.
Well I just plussed you and this post went up by 3 points.
We're both magical tonite.
EDIT: I guess I should have actually watched this before posting it... fair warning... do NOT watch the last 8 seconds. :)
WARNING: I do not think this is a good song, just really really funny in how bad it is
What are these guys going to do if (I think when) RichRod starts winning? Are they going to keep calling him a db? I don't think so. Easy to denounce a guy when they're down...
I agree you should stick by your team as far as watching them and not spewing garbage about them all the time. However, it is ok to be objective about the team.
I'm just surprised because it came out of nowhere. These last few days have been quite strange here.
What makes you so sure Rich Rod is going to start winning? Must be his defensive coaching abilities
WTF, are you doing this just to be a dick now?
just because he hasn't been CONVICTED of any NCAA wrongdoings, he deserves other schools letting him beat them so he can keep his job.
are you from the Westboro Baptist Church? are you also going to tell me that god hates michigan and that we all deserve to die for supporting RR?
Actually I do in fact believe that God hates Michigan.. And no, nobody deserves to die for supporting a head football coach.
Oddly enough, this isn't even your worst post on this thread.
In addition to it not being his worst post, he probably would get up voted by many for the God-Hating part if he were not in fact, well, himself.
You must not know how to read. I've written way too many words on the subject of how good I think the defense needs to be in order for this team to roll. Anything near average D and we win 8+, book it.
